About us

As a Catholic Voluntary Academy everything we do is based around our Mission Statement & Values and we expect all who work with us to respect our distinctive Catholic ethos.

Our Mission Statement: 'Inspiring ambition and excellence, guided by Christ'

Our Values:

  • Compassion

  • Excellence
  • Determination
  • Faithfulness
  • Optimism
  • Reconciliation

Our School Values are encapsulated in the phrase ‘Cared For,’ which represents our attitude to the support we endeavour to offer each and every student in our care.

Saint John Houghton Catholic Voluntary Academy opened in January 1965 as The Blessed John Houghton Catholic School to provide a secondary Catholic education in the local area. The school has grown in size and reputation ever since. We are an 11-16 comprehensive school, providing education for students of all abilities and we pride ourselves on our inclusive nature and ethos. Saint John Houghton Catholic Voluntary Academy is proud to be part of the Saint Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi Academy Trust.

Our aim is to deliver 'world class' education, opportunities, support and care for every child as unique children of God. We strive to ensure that the children in our care are loved, valued and supported and leave us as confident young adults ready for life in modern society, equipped with the skills necessary to survive and thrive in the world of today.

Jesus Christ is at the centre of our school, and we strive to live by and teach the values of love, forgiveness, excellence, compassion, and service to others. Our motto is “Garde ta Foi” which means “Guard your Faith." We constantly ask our students to have the 'courage to do what is right' which means standing up for just causes and for those who have no one else to stand up for them.
